Project Description

REPORT:

Situated in a rural area called Kamhlushwa 35 minutes from Malelane, Mlumati is one of six Ehlanzeni TVET College campuses and has 1276 students in attendance. It was named after the Mlumati river which passes near the community.

  • The FAN team was warmly received and for a change the vast majority of students who attended the workshop were male.

  • A number of interesting conversations took place during the Q and A time that resulted in excellent “teachable moments”. One was in response to a claim that there have been several incidences of disgruntled women falsely accusing men of rape and going as far as reporting them to the police. Another was sparked by a male student opining that women are not equal to men and should submit to them.
